ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -  The season is three weeks old, and the state playoff rankings are now out, which has Hasbrouck Heights and Wood-Ridge looking up at Cresskill as the top team in North Group 1 football.  

There is a new ranking system which is designed to rank teams based off who they beat, not how badly they beat them.  The OSI Rating (which is basically the strength of your opponents schedule) and power points will decide the final ranking

Hasbrouck Heights is currently 11th, while Wood-Ridge sits 16th in the rankings, posted on Gridiron NJ. Both schools are 2-1, and both are feeling the impact from the new ratings system.  The only problem is, all the data required to calculate the Opponent Strength Index is not readily evident, so trying to figure out what you need to do to move up is difficult.

The simplest answer would be, just win and it will settle itself out. 

The Aviators opened the season with a loss to Cresskill (first), while Wood-Ridge was defeated by Park Ridge (4th).  The Aviators then beat 24th ranked Saddle Brook and 19th ranked Becton Regional. Wood-Ridge defeated Weehawken (28th) and Bogota (26th.)   This week Hasbrouck Heights is home to Lodi, while Wood-Ridge plays Becton Regional. 

Also new this year, there is it a “Super Section” which will take the top 16 in North Group 1, and create two separate tournaments using an “S” curve.  (The teams ranked 1,4,5,8,9,12,13,16 will be North 1, while teams 2,3,6,7,14,15),

Below is a listing of rankings.
